As part of the arrangement, OEP will address the scale up of the nanoparticle technology and, together, OEP and PharmaNova intend to become world leaders in the application and manufacturing of nanoparticle-based pharmaceuticals. The companies will collaborate on the application of both companies' platform technologies to complete mutually selected new product opportunities, for development and commercialization worldwide utilizing OEP's new manufacturing facilities in Taiwan. PharmaNova President Rodney Brown said, "We are very impressed with OEP's excellent product manufacturing and commercialization capabilities and look forward to a long and mutually rewarding relationship."

OEP has an extensive portfolio of products both in development and already in the marketplace, and PharmaNova will support OEP in expanding the regional commercialization of its products throughout Asia-Pacific and through partnerships in Latin America, Europe and U.S. Central to the collaboration is the exclusive development and commercialization of Xenolev-CR(TM) by OEP for Asia Pacific territories. Xenolev-CR(TM) is PharmaNova's proprietary non-hormonal treatment for hot flashes associated with the menopause and other conditions. Mr. Peter Tsai, president and chairman of OEP, said, "We are very excited about this partnership with PharmaNova as it will allow OEP to expand the geographical scope of our business activities beyond the immediate Asia Pacific region by contributing our expertise in product development and utilizing our new state of the art manufacturing facilities."
